We have always said that if you want to be Timbers Army then you are… simply show up and cheer for the team. This is still true.
In addition, last year we also introduced 107ist (Independent Supporters Trust) which is a member-based non-profit organization open to anyone who loves soccer, the Timbers, Portland, and, especially, the combination of the three, regardless of where they sit in the stadium. It arose as a means to coordinate all the things that the Timbers Army was already doing; to work with Timbers management in resolving issues, to help make the game day experience (both at home and away) bigger and better for everyone, and to help fund various charities and events in the Portland soccer community.
This weekend we expect to pass a significant membership milestone. To commemorate this we are giving away one of the newly redesigned No Pity scarves to the person that signs up as the 1000th 107ist member.
